The exhibition “Mal's Group” includes work by Mal and six of his students, the majority of works are in pastel, the subjects generally reflecting riverscapes, rural and seascapes.
Alison Waye's exhibition “Australian Love Stories”, are paintings which contemplate our native species, our relationship to the Australian environment and the people in the community who love it and work tirelessly to save threatened species. Her passion is in promoting a love of our environment and an antidote to despair at the state of the world by telling stories of love, compassion and perseverance.
Looking towards the future, Alison connects her work to several conservation groups.
